iPerm: Guided wave monitoring tool (iPerm)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2018,

Today, there are more than 40 major transnational oil and gas pipelines traversing Europe, accounting for over 34,565 km of strategically critical pipeline infrastructure, 40% of which are over 40 years old and subject to corrosion induced catastrophic failures impacting negatively upon European society and its economy. With such an extensive and growing network of pipelines, and a corollary incre ...

Our prime objective is to generate in excess of €22million profits for the participating companies by addressing a European need for the safe maintenance and inspection of power lines. Intel-Line is an intelligent automatic, inspection system using advanced ultrasonics and incorporating wireless transmission and energy harvesting to provide a ‘fit and forget’ condition monitoring and failure alarm ...

... nks (ASTs), thus avoiding avoid damage to the environment and the loss of revenue from the unscheduled outages of leaking tanks, currently estimated at €132m. At its core is the exploitation of Plant Integrity’s proven non-invasive storage tank floor monitoring technology capable of detecting defects as small as 25mm.Plant Integrity’s SafeAST system provides continuous structural condition monit ...

The ACARE targets for civil aircraft include NOx and CO2 emissions reductions of 80% and 50% respectively by 2020. Although airframes make a significant contribution, most of the balance (especially NOx) will be contributed by the engines. These contributions are expected to be achieved by lean burn, increased propulsive efficiency and increments in cycle efficiency via reduced component losses. ...

The installation of sprinklers can result in substantial reductions in insurance premiums and so insurance companies are becoming increasingly interested in their proper installation and function. For example, the British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association has abundant evidence about the effectiveness of their members’ technology in reducing loss of life and property in office, residential, reta ...

Long Range Ultrasonic Inspection of Aircraft Wiring (SAFEWIRE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2014,

Defects in the electric wiring in aircraft have led to serious accidents. Cases in point were the losses of TWA Flight 800 in July 1996 and Swissair Flight 111 September 1998, in both of which ~ 230 people died. Experts investigating almost three decades of international aviation incidents between 1972 and 2000 found more than 400 wire related incidents. The Ageing Transport Systems Rulemaking Adv ...

 FINISHED 
A typical electricity power plant of 500MW (both nuclear and conventional) has up to 4 kilometres of pipe work carrying superheated steam at pressures of up to 400 bars and temperatures up to 580 oC. The extreme pressures produce hoop stresses in a pipe causing the pipe welds to creep continuously in time until weld creep cracks are generated which, if undiscovered, may grow until the pipe rupture ...
